STATEMENT

 

I have an alphabet of around 200 drawings of forms. These forms derive from a variety of sources: some are objects from the landscape. Some are sharp-edged and geometric whilst others are more amorphous and blobby. Some are reminiscent of topiary or architecture, others suggestive of something animated.  I use these forms to construct drawings of imagined exterior spaces. I think of the drawings as gardens, cities, stages - ambiguous territories where these forms can pile up, multiply, or interact.

 

More recently I’ve begun making wall drawings that begin to explore other spatial possibilities – not only an increase in scale but also how the drawings might be configured to a specific three dimensional space.
